The ‘Shipwreck’ Is A Massive Seafood Sandwich Built On A Loaf Of Garlic Bread


The best part of hitting up a seafood emporium is the variety of options you have available. Everything from freshly fried calamari to creamy clam chowder and freshly grilled fish is on deck.

While it may be hard to pick just one item to enjoy, there’s always the option of combining them all together, and this sandwich does just that.

Called the Shipwreck, this all-in-one sub is easily enough to feed the entire squad. Found at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, this bountiful fish sandwich carries all of the ocean’s most mouthwatering treasures.

That involves heaps of fried calamari, slabs of grilled salmon, and a healthy portion of clam chowder (yes, you get soup IN this sandwich) tucked into made-to-order garlic bread. It’s all brought together with deep-fried potatoes, fajita vegetables with cheese, and San Pedro’s Secret Sauce.

All three locations of the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, in Wilmington, Rolling Hills Estates, and Harbor City, California, are now carrying The Shipwreck through the end of January. If you can’t make the drive out to one of the Grilles to try this in person, San Pedro Fish Market does sell spices, hot sauces, and Minute Meals online that you can order to make this bad boy within the confines of your own kitchen.

The Shipwreck is the seafood enthusiast’s cheat meal and the sandwich fanatic’s dream all wrapped up in one, and is an absolute beast capable of capsizing almost any appetite. It’s worth the challenge of seeking out and conquering, whether it be solo or with a couple of hungry pals.

13 Souplantation Hacks That’ll Change Your Entire Experience

Souplantation is one of our guilty pleasures. It’s the one place we can eat as much as we want, yet still feel OK about ourselves because it’s mostly soups and salads. Mostly.

Recently, we took an extended lunch and played with some hacks and upgrades one can dabble with at any Souplantation. We gotta admit, we might have had a little too much fun. Though it’s all in the name of discovery, right?

Check out some of the upgrades you can perform to enhance your dining experience.

__________

Loaded Pasta

SP-Loaded-Pasta

Grab any pasta. Be it penne, mac & cheese, carbonara (spaghetti), or linguini and load it up. Throw some mushrooms, bacon bits, cheese, onions, anything you can get your hands on that’ll load it up. Don’t be afraid of dessert toppings as well.

Corn Bread Soup

SP-Corn-Bread-Soup

A popular hack, take a piece of corn bread and break it in half. Then, top it with chili and a little tomato soup. Let the cornbread soak everything up and add some sour cream, cheese and onions. The result should give you a moist, soup-soaked corn bread.

Clam Chowder Pizza

SP-Pizza-Chowder

One of our favorites. Roll over to the pizza bar and grab some slices on a plate. Then, head back to the soup bar and ladle a generous amount of clam chowder. We suggest topping it with shredded cheese. Amazing.

Creamy Mushroom Soup Penne

SP-Creamy-Penne

Another popular hack, grab some penne from the pasta station. Then, go find the Cream of Mushroom from the soup bar and throw some one top the pasta. You’ll have a creamier pasta dish with more flavor and mushroom. Control the texture of the dish with how much pasta you add. Heads up, it’s gonna be rich.

3-Pepper Chili

SP-3-Pepper-Chili

Sure, the chili at Souplantation is great but it could definitely be spicier. Three peppers spicier. Grab yourselves a bunch of jalapeños, a pepperoncini and a generous dash of black pepper. Should kick your chili up a notch.

Bacon Chowder Potato

SP-Clam-Potato

There’s a simple beauty to a baked potato with just butter and salt. However, if you’re doing all-you-can-eat, you’re gonna want to change it up. Split a baked potato in half and ladle some Clam Chowder on top. Then, throw some bacon on it!

Blueberry Muffin Top Ice Cream Sandwich

SP-Muffintop-Sandwich

Everyone’s favorite part of the muffin is the top. It’s been proven time and time again. So we took the top of two blueberry muffins and used them as the part of an ice cream sandwich. Feel free to get some rainbow sprinkles in there, you’re already this far.

All-The-Pasta

SP-Pasta-All

Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Grab all the pastas you can get your hands on. Whether it’s in the pasta station, salad bar, or even if you feel like digging it out of soups. Toss them into a bowl and mix them together. God, those beautiful carbs.

Brownie Chocolate Bites

SP-Brownie-Bites

Souplantation has plenty of chocolate. If you take a brownie from the bakery and break it in half, you can throw some chocolate mousse on top one piece. On the other, put some chocolate ice cream on top (we chose a combination swirl). Let Oreo cookies, or chocolate sprinkles, rain. Finally, drizzle some hot chocolate syrup on top of your dessert.

Vanilla Bacon Cone

SP-Vanilla-Bacon

It’s often been proven that bacon goes great with dessert. So why not combine two of the most readily-avalible items at Souplantation? Make yourself a vanilla cone and sprinkle some bits of bacon on top. It’s delicious.

Sourdough BLT

SP-BLT

Feel like sandwiches? The bakery section should have some freshly baked sourdough slices. Grab yourselves two and head back to the salad station. There, choose from any salad. That’s your lettuce. Grab some cherry tomatoes (we had to dice them up real quick) and finally some bacon bits. If you like your sandwiches a little more moist, we suggest adding a little cream from whatever pasta available with a white sauce.

Loaded Baked Potato

SP-Loaded-Potato

A simple, but essential upgrade. Find yourselves a hot baked potato and start piling. Cheese, onions, sour cream, green onions, basil, soup, bacon, anything you want. Load this baby up until you forget there’s a potato underneath.

Chili à la Mode

SP-Chili-ala-Mode

Ice cream and chili. Just because we wanted to see what it looked like. Yeah, maybe skip this one.

Grub Like a Grumpy Sailor With Beer-Infused Clam Chowder

dogfishchowder1

It’s easy to argue Captain Ahab was an angry, maniacal loon, but maybe he was just drunker than he thought. That’s the story I would roll with anyway, and thanks to Delaware’s Dogfish Head brewery, acting like a belligerent seadog now comes standard with a bowl of IPA-infused Clam Chowder.

Dubbed “Hard Tack,” Dogfish Head’s belly-warming slop is based on a recipe from Moby Dick – a mixture of Ocean Quahog Clams, salted pork and hardtack biscuits infused with the brewery’s famous 60 Minute IPA. Of course, side-effects may include brooding at cemeteries and asking people to “Call you Ishmael.” But when paired with an Indian Brown Ale or 90 Minute IPA, there’s no better way to ride out a particularly trying voyage, even if it’s just in a inflatable donut down a crowded lazy river.
